Trail Overview

What begins as a paved road soon turns into an easy, maintained dirt road, wide enough for vehicles to pass. There are several (hike, bike, horse) trailheads along this route. Beautiful desert scenery in every direction. Even though it's on BLM land, it's also the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area, therefore public camping and shooting are not allowed. The road may be impassable during wet or winter conditions.
